This is great and would be even better if the desk was a wider -- I'd need more desktop space than that.
I love this design! It would be great in a shared kids' room too.
erm, except that one side gets the bookshelf and the other side gets the back of the bookshelf.Couldn't we just get an open bookshelf:http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40103628And put a desktop through it:http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S59847780
Anyone else notice the bottom shelf has dog food, water, and chew bone on it? That's a great idea to keep it from getting in the way elsewhere...but I KNOW I would put my foot in the water dish if I tried to sit at the desk.Not to mention banging my head on the desk when trying to move the bowls out to clean and refill.
Anybody who's seen the film Brazil will know to be wary of a shareddesk.
I think it just looks weird.
I have always loved this idea from the first time I saw it... but there are better options for my lifestyle at the moment. If I open my etsy shop one of these days I may have a need for a double desk like this, but for now I don't. Does anyone know if there are any instructions online to make a basket like the ones hanging from the side or where I can buy them?!?!?!? I have been searching for years and can never find anything like it!
TRUEBLUE - I thought the same thing about the back of the bookshelf at first... however, if you covered the back of the bookshelf with cork or pretty fabric you could have yourself a pretty snazzy bulletin board AND you wouldn't be staring at an ugly bookcase-back. voila!
I've seen this for years and have always loved it... would make it myself but I have no need for a shared desk area like that. Anyone know where I can get either instructions on how to make those hanging baskets on the side or buy them???
I might be moving into a smaller space and was looking for a solution to having 2 desk in one space. This would definately be an idea we can use!
Please someone tell me the name of the color blue in the DIY picture. I need to know!
The paint in the picture would be perfect for my new place!!Like JMBnewsgirl, I'd really appreciate it if someone could tell me what paint color that is and who makes it.
I used a similar color in my sewing room and I love it: Ocean Air by Benjamin Moore
I have two elementary schoolers that this would be perfect for. They can't see each other if they stay in their seats. That would minimize conflicts. I would use 2 bookcases back to back and attached to each other using "mending plates" from the hardware store. That way each kid has his own shelves. Love it!
Where are the instuction??? I'm getting so frustrated trying to find them. None of the links are taking me there.
Got a tip, home tour, or other story our readers should see?
